Larus hyperboreus x argentatus

Hybrid Glaucous-winged - Heering Gull -
Gråtrut-Vittrut hybrid - Gråmåge-Sølvmågehybrid


A first winter Herring x Glaucous Gull at the harbour of fishing hot-house Hirtshals on he north western coast of peninsula Jutland on Sunday March 13. 2005. I have a natural born weakness for anything carrying a set of light primaries even if they are not too white, and it's a hybrid, an illegitimate child like this one hatched out of an egg, carrying genes of two different species, the product of a hot affair of a Glaucous Gull and a Herring Gull.
